About Alexandra Shaw

Alexandra is a transplant to PEI who quickly fell in love with the Island, and decided she is here to stay. Summer or winter, she loves spending time outdoors, whether it is reading a book on sandy beaches followed by a swim in the warm ocean water, or snowshoeing in the forest in mid-winter.

In her day job, Alexandra is a Communications professional who enjoys the outdoors, good food, travelling, and taking the time to stop and smell the roses. As an avid traveller, Alexandra understands the importance of a home away from home: she makes every effort to make you feel comfortable, and tries to anticipate any of the needs you might have. She is also a real 'people-person', and enjoys meeting her guests and doing all she can to make their vacation a success.

Alexandra Shaw purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Alexandra Shaw chose Grand Tracadie

Since childhood, Alexandra has loved everything about the ocean. After moving to PEI, she dreamed of finding the perfect oceanside getaway. In February 2014, Alexandra snowshoed up to this cottage and it was love at first sight. She loved the private, ten-acre lot on the ocean in beautiful Tracadie Bay, the view of PEI's famous sand dunes, and the sole sound of wind in the trees.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage boasts a huge screened-in porch that looks out onto the ocean, and where you can lounge morning, noon, and night.

Quiet paradise by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 5 days. Lovely house in a secluded spot. For most of our stay we left the car parked in the driveway & just enjoyed the peace. The weather was great on for a couple of days and atrocious on other days — either way it didn’t matter. When it was nice we walked along the beach or hung out in the backyard. When rainy & cold we just enjoyed catching up on reading in the cozy house. Alexa was gracious and helpful.

Lovely, restful cottage on gorgeous property overlooking the water...

  • 5 of 5

My mom, two sisters and I stayed in Alexa's cottage for a girls' getaway weekend last month and had a fabulous experience. Alex was responsive and informative from the moment I contacted her and helped make our first visit to Prince Edward Island simply wonderful. We arrived to the island late at night and were welcomed to the cottage with a bag full of local artisanal goodies. Alexa had also kindly stocked the fridge with milk and left us delectable croissants for our first morning. Throughout the trip, she was communicative and offered great recommendations of restaurants and places to see. Her cottage itself is very clean, beautifully decorated, and inviting. All of the beds were comfortably made, with extra towels and blankets available in each room. She's thought of so many details to make her guests comfortable during their stay from providing a charging station for both iPhones and Androids in the living room, to a night-light in the bathroom, to leaving several maps and brochures of the island out for guests' use. Her property is simply stunning and we loved taking morning walks along the shore and up the lane, and having breakfast on the screened in porch overlooking the water. I'd love to go back during the summer months and utilize the fire-pit in her backyard and spend more time on the water in the kayak and canoe she provides. Needless to say, we fell in love with the island and I hope to plan another trip to dreamy PEI and Alexa's charming Seagrass Cottage very soon!

Peace and relaxation in PEI

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this property! Firstly, Alexa is a SUPER hostess. She was always prompt to respond during our booking process and met us at the property when we arrived. When we had questions during our stay she was always very quick to respond.

This cottage is so relaxing. The view of the water with the sand dunes in the distance forces you to relax once you walk in the door. The screened in porch is a wonderful place to spend your time eating all of your meals, playing board games and watching the fireflies after dark. The location is simply perfect! So close to PEI national park with it's miles and miles of gorgeous white sand beaches, Charlottetown is 20 minutes away and it is a great place to start many day trips to explore the island from.

The access to the kayak and canoe were an added bonus which allowed us to explore the MASSIVE dunes across the bay. They are simply a must see when you stay here. Yes, there are mosquitoes, but Alexa has done everything she possibly can to minimize them by way of clearing brush etc. so we did not let them stop us from enjoying evenings by the fire pit at the back of the property. The sunsets were stunning from here. We have rented a lot of properties through VRBO and this is one of our absolute favourites! It was hard to leave. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us. Cheers from Vancouver!!

Comfortable cottage with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean, comfortable, well equipped cottage with spectacular views of Tracadie Bay. Alexa (the owner) is attentive and helpful and ensures you have the information you need for your stay. The cottage is only a short drive from a National Park and miles of sand beaches, and is only 20 minutes from Charlottetown. The downside of the property is the mosquitoes, but a spacious, screened-in back porch offers a place to have meals and see the sunsets. The cottage has an open-concept layout and offers plenty of room for making your own meals, playing board games, lounging and chatting, and generally relaxing. We would recommend this cottage to our friends.

Wonderful Place - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs absolutely loved staying at the Seagrass Retreat. We enjoyed the quiet setting, wonderful sunrises and walks along the beach. The glow of the sunset on the dunes while we ate dinner will be a lasting memory. Alexa was a wonderful host and the house was comfy and just perfect. We will certainly be back!

Located on PEI's beautiful North Shore, this cottage is smack in the middle of all the Island has to offer. Located on a ten-acre lot, enjoy full privacy on beautiful Tracadie Bay, with a million-dollar ocean view and ocean access. Explore the nearby National Park or take off in a kayak or canoe to explore the bay and dunes!

Drive west a few minutes to enter the National Park at Dalvay, and continue on to Stanhope, Brackley Beach, Cavendish etc. Head east to Crowbush, Lakehead, Greenwich Park, Souris, etc. Or, drive 20 minutes to the Trailside Inn for the hippest music venue east of Montreal, or to Charlottetown to take in one of the many shows playing through the summer.
